Welcome to the XIX Chapter of Mortar Board!
Members of Mortar Board National Senior College Honor Society – founded on the values of scholarship, leadership, and service – live out these values through helping others each day. Founded in 1918, the Kansas State Mortar Board chapter contains a group of 33 of the best and brightest men and women from the K-State campus. This organization allows students to step out of their comfort zone while exemplifying some of our greatest leadership attributes on our campus and throughout the Manhattan community.
At the 2013 Mortar Board National Conference in Chicago, the Kansas State XIX Chapter was honored with the Mortar Board Golden Torch Award for our chapter's outstanding year. This was a huge honor for our chapter as only approximately 10 percent of national chapters received the Golden Torch recognition. The continued determination and achievement earned Kansas State's chapter our tenth consecutive national award.
The Mortar Board Senior Honor Society allows members to serve something larger than themselves while making new friendships formed on the foundation of three of life's most important values: leadership, scholarship, and service. Mortar Board has been one of the most dynamic and exciting organizations that I have been involved in, and has definitely made my senior year at K-State more rewarding! I had been hoping to join Mortar Board since my freshman year of college and am so thankful I have been able to play a part in this life-changing organization. I encourage all of you to look into Mortar Board and consider applying for your senior year. Thank you for visiting our website! If you have any questions, please feel free to use any of us as a resource.
